Zephyr, 19-022's Bio

True to his breed, Zephyr is very unique, right down to that corkscrew tail. While he is a great companion to humans, he does not have any of that “in your face, love me please” that comes with most dogs. Instead, he is quite stoic and prefers the regal approach to life. Zephyr was surrendered to the shelter as half of a pair, and his sibling got adopted right away, leaving Zephyr behind for over a month. Rather than jumping at the kennel door trying to be cute and entice adopters with his antics, he remained calm in his kennel. He would simply lay on his bed and watch them pass, staring at them with his soulful gaze hoping they would be the one to finally choose him. Sadly, people misread his intense stare as something intimidating and he was overlooked time and again. Zephyr is truly special and can’t wait to show his new family his heart of gold. He is superb on a leash, and has manners at gates and doors. He knows sit, down, and stay; and who knows what else. He is house trained, and if not crate trained already could be easily. The term gentle giant may have been coined just for this handsome gentleman!  

Zephyr is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped. His adoption fee is $200.  

CARE's adoptable pets are specifically evaluated and selected to be family and companion animals. We place them in foster homes where they live in the home environment and become part of the family while awaiting permanent adoption. For that reason, they will do best in homes where they are primarily inside pets and spend lots of time with their families.
